Ashanti, ‘Foolish’ – Annoying R&B Songs
Ashanti's 'Foolish' was one of the most popular songs back in 2002, hitting No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The formula was perfect. Take an old DeBarge song -- 'Stay With Me' -- that became popular in the 1980s, and use a popular Notorious B.I.G track -- 'One More Chance (Remix)' -- mix it with Ashanti’s catchy, to-the-point lyrics and the hit was just there waiting to happen.
But the Ashanti track became that one song you tried to avoid hearing. Popped up on the radio? You changed it. Oh but wait, the other station was playing it too. No wonder iPods became so popular at this time.
